The "Fonds Neues Musiktheater" (New Musical Theatre Fund) was established in 2001 to encourage more new work on music theatre and thus to set a counterpoint to the "classical" repertoire. Since 2001, more than 170 music theatre productions have been realised with the support of this funding instrument. A further ten grants have been applied for in 2020.


Together with the Düsseldorf District Government and the NRW Ministry of Culture, the funding procedure was revised and simplified in 2019 in order to expand the range of possibilities for funding applications. This means that funding can now be applied for, above all, for longer project planning phases of up to three years - thus responding much more closely to theatre practice.


In order to enable commissioned compositions, world premieres and premieres at the theatres and opera houses in NRW, the NRW Ministry of Culture provides the NRW KULTURsekretariat with special funds of 250,000 euros per year for the houses.


In addition to commissions for new compositions, this fund also supports venues of recent and contemporary works.


In addition, since 2010 it has also been possible to support dance productions that incorporate new music performed live by the orchestra at the house. Since 2019, applications for revivals have also been possible.


The following productions are supported:

Theater Bielefeld "Puls" (composition commission to Francesco Antonioni for the first performance of a dance piece), premiere: 04.04.2020 postponed to the 2021/22 season

Theater Bielefeld: "Berlin Alexanderplatz" by Vivan and Ketan Bhatti (world premiere), premiere: 01.09.2021


Theater Bonn "Awakening" by Param Vir, premiere: 13.12.2020 due to corona shifted to 9/2021


Theater Dortmund "Der Hetzer" (world premiere) by Bernhard Lang, premiere: 21.03.2021

Deutsche Oper am Rhein Düsseldorf: "Septembersonate", composition commission to Manfred Trojahn, premiere: 2023


Theater Hagen "A Room of One´s Own" (world premiere) by Outi Tarkiainen, premiere: spring 2022

Notes for applicants

Municipal theaters from NRWKS member cities may submit applications for composition commissions, opera and dance productions featuring new and contemporary music, and their revivals. Productions must involve in-house ensembles such as chorus, orchestra and vocal ensemble. Guest productions are excluded from funding.


Application deadlines must be requested from the NRWKS.


The amount of funding must also be requested from the NRWKS.


Funding can only be granted if the basic conditions for funding by the NRWKS are met. Detailed information can be found >>here.
